What is a Tobacco Treatment Specialist?

A Tobacco Treatment Specialist is a professional who possesses the skills, knowledge and training to provide effective, evidence-based interventions for tobacco dependence.  The TTS may have various professional affiliations and may work in a variety of settings including but not limited to hospitals, regional and village health clinics, educational settings, social service agencies, nicotine dependence treatment programs, behavioral health program, drug abuse treatment programs and mental health centers.  The TTS may engage not only in providing treatment but also in educating others (health care professionals, administrators, scientists, tobacco users, non-tobacco users) about tobacco dependence treatments.  One day of motivational interviewing techniques is included in the TTS training.

**Continuing education pending.
